We drove 130kms to see this as it was something we were really interested in. Arrived at 12.55pm which gave us just over an hour as it shut at 2pm. But when we arrived at the car park we were waved away dismissively by a silver haired bloke who was manning the site. He was already in the process of turning away two carloads of people in front of us, so we pointed to the sign on the gate where closing time was clearly listed as 14.00 and he insisted it was 1pm and started to shut the gate. There were also three people racing back to their car as they saw he’d decided to close up. He must have had a hot date or something he’d rather have been doing, so I’d advise anyone driving a reasonable distance to double check the closing time or just not bother. Seems like they make the times up as the feel like it - very annoying waste of a day.

This site was part of our half-day tour. The cruise ship was in port for the day, so we used our time wisely. This dates back to 4,000 BC, unbelievable! A bit of a walk from where the bus parks, so wear comfortable shoes. If you have trouble walking, this probably wouldn't be a good choice.

This is a singular place. When you arrive all is visible in front of you, you can even go upside and have a look around. But the magic happens when the guide tells you more. There is a little fee to spend, 4 euros, but it worth the cost because you will be told about a holy place built over an ancient holy place built over a village built over a neolithic site. Amazing seeing all the signs of millennia: the phallic monolithic symbol of the fertility of the earth, animals' sacrifice to fertilize all around with blood, the place where animals were held firmly to be killed, the village... and most of all the shape of the holy place like a ziggurat. You feel like all is happening right now and you are a part of a grateful people celebrating a sacrifice.

It is an important archaeological site, a Pre-Nuragic Sardinia.
There is a concentration of different types of construction and the all monument is still considered unique not only in Europe but in the entire Mediterranean basin, morphologically linked to a Mesopotam ziqqurat.
Very well recommended it!

If you like to visit historical site and you are in the western part of Sardinia do not skip this place.
The facility is well maintained and it has good guided tours.
The personnel is very open to help and get you a better insight of the place if you are interested in the details.

We found I easily, brown touristic panels lead you there.
After parking, a walk on a road roman-liked paved, that already put you back in time, along a vast plane. On the left, the ticket office, where a very kind and enthusiastic woman explain you the history of the site, with the help of some panels and artifacts. She will lead you also on site, if you get there at a time where someone else can substitute her in the office ( not in our case, but the explanation were clear enough, she indicated us the places where to stop from the door, and she can give you a booklet with exact translation of all the panels that are in Italian only).
The site is impressive, a menhir, two round rocks to symbolise probably the life, an altar (there was a snake underneath! Much scared then us, disappeared quickly from our view), tracks of houses on the back, and then the Ziggurat itself, on which you can climb to see the view and imagine you back in time, with the 3 different layers under your feet corresponding to different periods, starting 4000a.c.! Multiple necropolis lay in other sites not far from here. You can imagine the whole area, now empty, as densely populated in the remote past!

What we see is for a big part a reconstruction but there is enough of it that is original to be fascinating and unique. It being winter there was only an Italian speaking guide available but he was great and talked slowly so we understood a big part of it. He explained the history of the site very well (the pictures in the small building on the site helped) and did a great tour. It is a fscinating place, very different from the nuraghi, and a must see on the Island.

Impressive very old structure. Well preserved. There could have been some more information in English.
There is also a menhir, a stone on which the sacrifices where made and a stone with the mother nature figure on it.

We tried to find this, based on the guide book (2014) and satnav... But couldn't.
The site is located off the OLD SS131, i.e. Not the new motorway, but now the Via Sassari that runs (South)East from Porto Torres.
We never visited, so can't comment on the ruins, but saw artefacts in nearby museums.

What a shame this place is not widely known, it will have many more visitors than the 10 per day.
The comune of Porto Torres/Sassari, really need to make people aware of its existence.

A marvellous place to visit, one of very few left in the world. You can see the phallic and feminine symbols( the perfect stone eggs) symbolizing fertility. There is a round stone with holes in it where the animals were sacrificed, the holes served for the cord tying up the animals.
It is a magical and serene place.
